It's no secret that kids can be cruel to other kids. Bullying is not a recent problem. However in recent years cyber-bullying has become a new issue for parents to deal with.

What is cyber-bulling? Cyber-bullying utilizes the new forms of technology that kids are familiar with. These technologies include: text messaging, instant messaging, You Tube, social media websites such as Facebook and MySpace, and photos taken from cell phones.

To help parents, the District 62 Foundation will be having a free presentation on Tuesday April 6th from 7-8:30 pm in the Algonquin Middle School Gymnasium, located at 767 E. Algonquin Road in Des Plaines. The presenter will be John Halligan, an expert on the topics of bullying, cyber-bullying, and teen depression.
